Digital Printing


Lower start up costs, efficient speed to market, variable data

With today’s technological advancements, digital printing is beginning to encroach further and further into other markets that were traditionally dominated by the older more established print techniques.

Could you be reaping the rewards from digital printing?

There are many advantages to digital print, generally there are no set up or origination up front costs. This allows small quantities of printed packaging to be produced very cost effectively. It also allows for several different print versions to be produced without additional origination or set up charges. 

Digital print allows you to print each individual image or pack uniquely, therefore allowing you to personalise each print within a run, with no additional cost. 

As well as the benefits of low project start-up costs, digital printing is also a very quick and effective printing process for your custom box or sleeve. This gives the advantage of increasing the speed that goods and new products can be sent to market. Marketing agencies in particular are reaping the rewards of digital printing by utilising the speed it gives them when taking their clients products to market. It also allows them to produce and evaluate multiple test runs or experiment with graphic ideas easily and cost effectively. 

You only have to look at the success of Coco-Cola, Marmite and Nutella’s individual bottle name labelling campaign; all made possible by digital printing.

Learn about the process of digital printing

This method of printing uses basic CMYK four colours process printing techniques, but with the addition of "lighter" versions of these 4 colours. This then gives a much larger range or gamut of the visible colours that can be produced. Many machines also print a white ink which allows you to create interesting effects and imagery onto clear or coloured materials. In addition you can also print directly to the thicker, heavier substrates (up to approx. 25mm thickness) using UV inks that are then instantly cured under UV lamps.
